BROKEN DIAMONDS Ben Platt Lola Kirke. 90 min. not rated.
Broadway icon and burgeoning screen actor Ben Platt (PITCH PERFECT, THE POLITICIAN) stars as Scott, a twenty-something writer who dreams of moving to Paris.
After his father suddenly dies, Scott's plans are put in jeopardy as he discovers his sister Cindy (acclaimed up-and-comer Lola Kirke, MOZART IN THE JUNGLE) is living in a halfway house for the mentally ill.
Despite her wild and unpredictable behavior, Scott puts his life on hold to take her in. BROKEN DIAMOND poignantly follows these characters as they come to understand the effects of shared childhood trauma on each of their mental health, culminating in life-altering realizations for them both.
